CHF Using Tejay adjustable plates.

Tejay,Tejay. I just completed putting on my adjustable plates. Waiting for my Polyurethane bushing lube for my end links bushing and I will be completed with my CHF. Do you see anything wrong with the installation?

Maybe I'm confused but I thought the lube was only for when you replaced the bushing holding the sway bar to the frame, not the links?

Be certain to put the bushing bolt head closest to the springs as you did for the other two if that is what gives you the maximum clearance.

George,

Looks good to me. The small hole (stock) in in the front and the plates are on the inside. I'm assuming you torqued all bolts to 66 FT/LBS and added blue lock tight.

NXR is correct. The poly lube is used on the inside of the bushing so they can slip on the SB. That's rubber against metal. You can add some lube inside the bushing sleeve or bolt shank. When any turning occurs it will be the bolt inside the metal sleeve of the link bushing. It won't hurt have poly lube on the inside of the sleeve but regular grease works as well since it's metal on metal.

TeJay, I have a couple of questions for you. I have just received new rear bushings from Skuterdude for my '04 F-53. I would really like to make this a one shot deal if possible. I still have the front SB links from when I switched to Helwig units. (1) Do I need your plates if I use these links? (2) How do I contact you to order the plates (3) With your plates do I just use the stock rear links? I have tried to follow this and the other thread, but I am starting to go around and around. LOL Almost forgot (4) Best time to contact your if not through this forum. Thanks.
